Dina: "Amber Did Get Under My Skin"

Dina explains why she was annoyed with Amber

By Dina Manzo

Hi Everyone!

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Loving all the emails tweets and Facebook and Instagram messages saying that you are enjoying the return of me and Lexi to the show. It means a lot to get such an outpouring of love and support. You guys are awesome and I am so grateful for your amazing energy!

As you might notice, I was not looking or feeling my best the last few episodes. I was under a tremendous amount of stress with the college application process, my separation,and worrying about Teresa and what she is going through. My emotional issues were manifesting themself into physical issues -- my skin was a mess and my stomach was always in knots. I went to the doctor and got a complete workup and was diagnosed with extreme food allergies, anemia, and my hormones were all over the place! Check out my after party on and I will explain how I got control of these physical issues and how NOT to even let them happen in the first place! THANK GOD I am feeling great now and my skin is looking better than ever; I've got that healthy glow back!

OK now let's jump right in to the drama... Amber did get under my skin by getting emotional in front of Audriana. Listen, I know Fabilinis were involved and she did seem genuine, but not in front of the kids please. I have resting bitch face to begin with, but I think you can all tell what I was thinking at that second. I'll say it again and again, I am VERY protective of Teresa and her family right now.I wish I could wave a magic wand and take all the college stress away from Lexi. I know years from now we'll be laughing at all of this, but for now it's real and it's scary. So many life decisions to make, and each one will impact us both in a huge way. I think it's very different than when most children go off to college and are able to come home for holidays. I don't even know where home will be by our next holiday. But hey, look at the bright side, we got awesome Bulgari bracelets out of the deal!

James Van Praagh ( is a dear friend of mine. He was on tour in the area and we always make a point to get together since we live on different coasts. Can you believe he picked up on Joe's dad? This was filmed months before he passed. It gave me chills to watch that whole scene. If you really listened to what he told Teresa, it's quite a powerful statement: "There is a lesson in every situation, sometimes it just takes time to see the value in it." We shall see... The Giudices will continue to remain on the top of my "prayer pile." I adore them.

[video_clip_url:]Well the sh--'s about to hit the fan with Amber and the twins, and when I say hit the fan, I mean really HIT THE FAN. Next week is sure to be a juicy episode, and speaking of juicy, did you see the hottie that asks me out on the preview? Yes, if you're not into drama, tune in for some major eye candy at least!


Now get your butts over to to take a look at my after party where I vlog and blog about everything you need to know about the behind the scenes of this episode along with a bonus video on manifesting all of your desires! Did you see my video last week where I explain why I distance myself from some family members? You know, in case you want to know more than the eye rolls and "I'm not going there" answers I give that producer voice in the sky.

Till next week my loves! Follow me on social media so we can chat some more!

Dina xoxo
